Mine are stock for 2007, which are shorter than ones for the following years. Some people complained their shoulders were blocking the view, but they work great for me. I had Yamaha Zuma mirrors on there for a little while since mine got rusty, but those were a bit bulky for me so I just painted my old ones flat black with green stripes. In what way does your's keep 'busting'?

ohh.. i think people keep twisting them when I am parked at school. or the vibration from riding knocks the gasket loose. on the last on ( about a week ago) I tried to do the self fix that I found on MB, and cracked the mirror trying to pry it loose.

thanks for your help.

Hmm, I hadn't heard of anyone having a problem with the actual mirror part coming loose, maybe you could just get a new one from scooterworks or somewhere it seems like yours is an isolated incident.

I cracked my mirror while trying to repair it, too. Once inside, my husband put some locktite on the nut under the glass. I had a local glass shop replace the glass. So far so good.

Oh, I had only heard of people having trouble with the stem coming loose, not the actual mirror disk.
I had the floppy mirror problem on my p200 but I think it's got a different kind of joint inside. I just took it off.

Brought my new Italia home last weekend to join her sister - my GF's Pamplona.




I would love to see the solo seat from the BlackJack on an Italia. Anyone have one?

Hi all. I'm the proud owner of a new Italia as of a few days ago. Once I start accessorizing and its personality (not sure if it a boy or girl yet) comes out, I'll put some pictures up. For now, and in case you were wondering, a Buddy does fit in a Honda Element Razz

Hi. I got my Italia about 7 weeks ago and I love her. I named her Bella but she is affectionately referred to as "The Avocado" by friends. I thought the baskets were a perfect addition.

I bought my Italia last month. Used with 800 miles on it. It still has an I <3 Italia sticker on the back flap from the previous owner. I've left it alone since I figure the sticker still applies.

I did however remove a glitter heart from the license plate...

Here's a photo of it I took 2 weeks ago. It's already out of date, as I replaced those mirrors with the ones that come on the newer buddies.

we should have badges made. yes, good idea. Wait, we already do!!!



Someone was asking about a photo of reflective rim tape? I've had great success with installation
and no problems with it peeling off after 6 or 7 months of abuse. This is the only shot I could find...
not the best angle, but you get the idea.



Wow, that looks friggin awesome!

seat cover I made like an ironing board cover. Topcase holds my full face helmet. I don't think it's quite as big as it looks though.

Can't believe I haven't seen this thread before, but I'll have to throw mine into the mix as well. Just got a new rear rack today and installed it, no pictures yet but here are a couple of recent ones.

Topcase works great yet if the roll bag has the right dim's - should be fine.
We have three riders/scooters/topcases and it works really well and looks good matched to the scooters yet some items just don;t lay in flat (like a laptop or pad of paper) so we are looking to upgrade to a few GIVI's sometime this year.

I've had my '09 since Jan 2011, when Genuine was pushing the free blingage with winter purchases. Includes front/rear racks, cowl bars, windshield. I've also done Dalvarado's grip and bar-end mirror mods.

Just to bring this post back to life…

Still love the Italia as one of our favorite. A picture before transforming to Potent Pink. This was her third and final Italia.

I inadvertently joined this group last fall, but only just now figured out the image attachment protocol.

So, here is the newest member of our fleet, as yet unnamed.

To be honest I'm not exactly sure! I bought the moped from my mother in law a couple years ago. And she bought it new from a dealer so I'm assuming it came that way
